Why Charlie Strong should be Louisville's top target

Some jumbled, random thoughts below on why I think Strong is the answer.  I posted a very similar version of this in the comments section of another post.  Just thought it could spark some interesting conversation...

 

Strong has now been at Florida as defensive coordinator for 7 consecutive years (since the Zook era), so he’s seen Florida at its lows and helped build them to the highest of highs. Factor in his southern recruiting connections (a region we used to do well in) along with his rebuilding experience, and we’ve got a damn good head coach candidate (at least on paper).

In addition to his obvious defensive prowess, he also used to coach wide receivers early in his career at Southern Illinois, so he does have some experience with the offense.

I think Strong with a good set of coodinators could get Louisville back to football relevance in just a few years. In addition, his previous national champion success at Florida would immediately infuse enthusiasm back into the fanbase, something that has been sorely lacking of late.

A lot of people (including myself) believe the main reason why Strong doesn’t have a HC job in the SEC is the fact that he’s black and maried a white woman. I would hope we at Louisville are cultured enough to have that be a non-issue and get what could possibly be a bargain deal.

In conclusion, if you don’t think Charlie Strong is the answer by now, you can go fuck yourself.

 

Just because I'm curious, here's a poll to see who everyone else wants as the next head coach at Louisville.  If you select "Other", enlighten us in the comments section please.
